Buried in the Stacks by Allison Brook – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Synopsis:

Librarian Carrie Singleton is building a haven, but one of her neighbors is misbehavin’. Can resident spirit Evelyn help Carrie catch the culprit who made her a ghost?

In winter, the Haunted Library is a refuge for homeless townspeople. When a group purchases a vacant house to establish a daytime haven for the homeless, Carrie offers the library as a meeting place for the Haven House committee, but quickly learns that it may be used for illegal activities.

As the new Sunshine Delegate, Carrie heads to the hospital to visit her cantankerous colleague, Dorothy, who had fallen outside the local supermarket. She tells Carrie that her husband tried to kill her–and that he murdered her Aunt Evelyn, the library’s resident ghost, six years earlier.

And then Dorothy is murdered–run off the road as soon as she returns to work. Evelyn implores Carrie to find her niece’s killer, but that’s no easy task: Dorothy had made a hobby of blackmailing her neighbors and colleagues. Carrie, Evelyn, and Smoky Joe the cat are on the case, but are the library cards stacked against them?

I really enjoyed Death Overdue so I’m not sure how I managed to miss book 2 in this series, but somehow I did! That did not stop me from really enjoying Buried in the Stacks though. (I’ll just have to go back and read Read and Gone) .

This series has so many things I love in a cozy mystery – a bit of the paranormal, a library setting, a cat, and plenty of interesting recurring characters. When asked by the library’s resident ghost to find her niece’s killer, Carrie finds herself embroiled in another murder investigation.

The mystery is very well done in this story, and I was very caught up both in trying to figure out who killed Dorothy and with the plight of the homeless in town. Real social issues being tackled by the local residents added a lot of heart and realism to the story. Like the first book, once I got started Buried in the Stacks was very hard to put down.
